About Me

MOST RECENT:

8th until 14th of March:

Hey there everyone!
I finished another set of exams and am thus one step closer to my graduation, but before subduing myself to coming work pressures I opted for a spontaneous trip around Europe to celebrate being young and healthy. Haha.
Unfortunately and unlike my last CS trip to East Asia, my girlfriend will have to write a term paper so that I will be on my own this time for a few days and looking forward to anyone that would like to spend a relaxed afternoon or evening getting to know a friendly stranger.
If you have any free time, any couch vacancies or useful advice on either Milan, Brussels, Copenhagen, London or Belfast feel free to let me know!

I am now doing my masters degree and indulge in all the pleasant amenities of the life of a uni student to the fullest. Other than that I am enjoying life, learning different languages, hanging out with friends, engaging in a variety of sports, spending time with family or watching a good movie.

If you want to know more about me, please message or meet me sometime!
